Chez Dior

Rating: ★★★★★

23158387_10155866823318011_1340310584_oNo, Chez Dior is not a designer clothing store. In fact, it’s the DC area’s only Senegalese restaurant and a very tasty one at that. This friendly, welcoming and brightly-decorated Hyatsville spot offers a broad menu showcasing one of West Africa’s most complex cuisines. Start off your meal with a pain de singe juice, made from the fruit of the baobab tree. After that (provided that you like fish), I highly recommend the thieboudienne, which is 23157718_10155866823313011_1219659693_othe national dish of Senegal (and neighboring Mauritania). Thieboudienne is a fish and rice dish that contains delicious, seasoned rice similar to jollof rice, but red in color due to tomato sauce and seasonings. The dish is great, but not if you don’t like fish and other flavors that may be a bit exotic for the American palate. Regardless of whether you go for the Thieboudienne, the laid-back, friendly vibe of Chez Dior is sure to make for a positive dining experience.

Chez Dior is located at 5124 Baltimore Ave, Hyattsville, MD 20781.
